Drought and Water Crises

Drought and Water Crises

Science, technology and management issues

Donald A. Wilhite

328 pages, parution le 29/03/2005


Today the world is facing a greater water crisis than ever. Droughts of lesser magnitude are resulting in greater impact. Even in years with normal precipitation, water shortages have become widespread in both developing and developed nations, in humid as well as arid climates. When faced with severe drought, governments become eager to act. Unfortunately, this eagerness usually wanes when precipitation returns to normal.

Drought and Water Crises: Science, Technology, and Management Issues explains the complexities of drought and the role of science, technology, and management in resolving many of the issues associated with the world's expanding water crises. Contributors discuss a broad range of topics in attempting to answer these most pressing questions.

  • How can we can improve planning tools and make mitigation took more readily available and adaptable?
  • How can we promote widespread adoption of new water-conserving technologies and encourage their use during non-drought periods?
  • How can seasonal forecasts and early warning systems be made more reliable and expressed in ways to better meet the needs of end users?
  • How can the drought-related policy experiences of some countries be systematically utilized to benefit others?

Drought and Water Crises collates considerable information from diverse disciplines with the goal of reducing societal vulnerability to drought. Featuring case studies and stressing new technologies, the book seeks to encourage nations to adopt a more risk-based, proactive policy for water and drought management.
